IAAF Confirms Date For 2018 Okpekpe Road Race by evansjeff(m): 7:43pm On Jan 03
The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has confirmed that the 2018 Okpekpe International Road Race will hold on May 12th.

Okpekpe 10-km race has been listed by the IAAF as one of the 10 Silver Label races to hold in the first half of 2018.

The athletics body recently elevated the race which holds in Okpekpe, Edo State to a Silver Label status.


The 2017 Edition of the race saw Ethiopia’s Leul Gabriesialse and Gabru Azemra win the men and women categories.

The Okpekpe road race is the first and only road race in Nigeria that has been granted full membership of Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS).

The east Africans have already won this tournament without the tournament starting. I was expecting people from our northern area to take advantage of the desert and weather in the area to develop talents in that part of the country for long distance race.

What talents have they developed besides knacking, reproducing wantonly and terrorism?
